Fujifilm’s Classic Negative Film Simulation Coming via Firmware Update to X-T3, GFX100 and X-T30

Classic Negative

As FujiRumors already told you here, along with the Fujifilm X-Pro3 on October 23, Fujifilm will also launch the new Classic Negative film simulation.

Classic Negative has a lovely nostalgic and vintage touch to it (see images below).

The good news I hear from sources:

  • Fujifilm will upgrade X Processor 4 cameras (Fujifilm X-T3, X-T30 and GFX100) with Classic Negative film simulation

Sadly (if the rumor is correct), my lovely little X-E3 won’t get it.

RUMOR: New Film Simulation Coming with Fujifilm X-Pro3… and to Fujifilm X-T3, X-T30 and GFX100 via Firmware Update?

Fujifilm X-Pro3

The Fujifilm X-Pro3 will come with a new film simulation.

I think this rumor will not only make future Fujifilm X-Pro3 owners happy, but also owners of Fujifilm X-T3, X-T30, GFX100, since those cameras share the same X Processor 4 and this could mean Fujifilm can update those cameras with this new film simulation.

TO BE CLEAR: I have no rumors that Fujifilm will update all X Processor 4 cameras with this new film simulation.

Recently Elia Locardi met Minami-San, Fujifilm’s color guru for the last 50 years. Minami-San developed the original Fujifilm film colors and is now responsible for the film simulation development. You can read the whole story here.

There is Hope: Fujifilm GFX100 in Stock in UK and German Store Expect Stock on September 12

The Fujifilm is now in stock at WexUK and CalumetDE expects stock on September 12.

Let’s hope this is a sign, that the Fujifilm GFX100 shortage will soon be over. I understand the unexpected high demand (my sources say 3 times higher than Fujiflm expected, Fujifilm managers officially said “more than 2 times higher orders than expected”).

But almost 4 months of waiting are long enough. Now please, just ship that beast!

Fujifilm Manager and Kevin Raber talk GFX100: “No Dials Improve Weather Sealing”

Kevin Raber, former publisher of Luminous-Landscape, is now back with his old team and they have started photoPXL.

In this episode, you can see Fujifilm manager Mike Bolbenko giving an overview on the Fujifilm GFX100.

I’ll skip things (specs) that I believe you all know already, and sum up below a few other points:

  • the term “medium format” is a film concept
  • in digital terms the current GFX sensor is better called “large format”
  • Fujifilm removed all the dials on the Fujifilm GFX100 because:
    – main reason for dial removal is that it improves weather sealing
    – about 50% of the users are going to shoot tethered
  • 16 bit makes files allows for more push/pull or color shifts
  • with flash, use mechanical shutter
  • electronic shutter for shooting fast and shallow DOF on brights sunny day
  • electronic shutter is silent. The company that made sound blimps, went bankrupt last year
  • electronic front curtain minimizes the shutter shake
  • max IBIS is 5.5 stops. With third party lenses you get up to 5
  • Kevin Raber recommends to keep IBIS on even when working on a tripod
  • Kevin Raber says Fuji stands behind customers, when it comes to repair (shutter lock on GFX100) and also firmware updates
  • Fujifilm can’t give film simulations color science to third parties. So, for people who want perfect match, they can use the free Fujifilm X RAW Studio software

Photons to Photos: Fujiflm GFX100 vs Sony a7rIV Dynamic Range and Other FULL FRAME Compared

Photons to Photos added the Sony a7rIV to their database, and you can now compare it to all other cameras, including the Fujifilm GFX100.

The new Sony a7rIV performs slightly worse at high ISO, but that’s not surprising, giving the higher resolution.

I decided to compare the Fujifilm GFX100 with the following full frame cameras: Sony a7rIV, Nikon Z7, Panasonic S1R, Sony A7rIII and Canon EOS R.

Fujifilm GFX100 Reviews: Groundbreaking Features, Justified Price and it Will Leave you Extremely Satisfied

Fujifilm GFX100 Reviews

ePhotozine published their full Fujifilm GFX100 review. From their conclusions:

The Fujifilm GFX 100 offers a whole host of groundbreaking features, starting with an excellent 100mp BSI CMOS medium-format sensor, combined with high-quality lenses and excellent image processing (and colour reproduction), and you get exceptional results. What’s even more impressive is how easy the camera is to use, whilst still obtaining results that impress. Thanks to the in-body sensor-based image stabilisation, you don’t have to worry about taking all your shots on a tripod, or using a self-timer.

The negatives we mention below are somewhat of a given, considering you’re looking at a 100mp camera, it’s to be expected that you’ll need a computer (and storage) that is capable of dealing with 100mp images. There will be those that find the camera too large (and heavy), however, again, the camera needs this space to support two batteries, and the in-body image stabilisation system, both things are particularly beneficial to get the best out of the camera.

It’s the kind of camera that will leave you extremely satisfied.

If you can afford it, and want the best available, then the Fujifilm GFX100 is a camera that delivers the results, and the price is easily justified. The Fujifilm GFX100 is, without doubt, an exceptional, and groundbreaking camera, well worth the money.
